New Spiritual Direction Group Eucharisteo

Begin a new spiritual discipline in 2020.

 

Learn to practice the daily discipline of gratitude and examination in this 7-week spiritual direction group. As we journey together with AnnVoskamp’s DVD series and book, One Thousand Gifts, we will explore the practice of keeping a gratitude journal and practicing a daily examen. In addition to viewing Ann Voskamp’s beautiful video series during our meetings, we will discuss how we are experiencing the practice of gratitude and daily examination. We will also seek God’s direction in this practice through a weekly imaginative prayer experience. When we enter into various gospel Scenes through contemplation, we will encounter Jesus and a deeper sense of His love for us.

Fee: $60 per class or $385 if paid in full by the first class.

Journey with St. Ignatius | Small Group

We will learn about St. Ignatius of Loyola and his Rules for Discernment using discussion and a DVD series by Father Timothy Gallagher.

 

At the conclusion of the discernment study, the group will begin The Spiritual Exercises, Annotation 18 following the liturgical season, which will be broken into 3 sections, Lightworks One (5 weeks during Advent), Lightworks Two (8 weeks during Lent), and Lightworks Three (4 weeks during Easter).

 

* There will be a 2 month break from mid December - mid February.  During this time, each group member will meet individually with Anne one time.

 

Lightworks is an Ignatian Prayer experience that helps individuals develop a more intimate relationship with God, form a deeper sense of faith community, and deepen their experiential knowledge of their faith.  

 

Group members pray 30 minutes per day using Scripture and the 18th Annotation of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.  The Exercises were developed by Ignatius and have been in continuous use for nearly 500 years.

Fee: $1350* for the year or $150* per month for 9 months
